of appearances. i'll tell you, the crowd behind me is getting excited, ashleigh, because air force one is taxing over towards us where president obama is going to be coming out shortly and making his remarks. yes, paul ryan has been an asset to governor romney. it's why some are saying the race here has been pretty tight, although there is a small lead, a consistent lead, for president obama. today we saw "wall street journ journal" nbc news poll, three points up the president is here in wisconsin. yesterday there was a poll in milwaukee, a marquette university poll that had the president up by much more, eight points. you talk to the obama campaign, they'll point to that marquette poll and they'll say it's more accurate. it seems likie internal polls ae in between the two. the bottom line, while he has a lead that is significant, you have to pay attention to it, it's not quite comfortable. that's why you're seeing president obama here today. we saw joe biden here last week. but paul ryan was here yesterday. mitt romney will be here tomorrow. bill clinton last night and this morning. there is a
-point plan. those at the top get to play by a different set of rules than you do. they get to pay lower tax rates. outsource jobs, they want to let wall street run wild, make reckless bets with other folks' money. that was the philosophy as ceo, as governor, and as president clinton said, he does have a lot of class, but he's not talking about change. all he's offering is a big rerun of the same policies that created so much hardship for so many americans. and you know, governor romney has been out here making a lot of last-minute promises lately. said he's all about fighting for the middle class. said he would cut taxes for everybody. and ask something from nobody, but the problem is we heard those promises before. keep in mind governor romney lives just a few miles south of here in the state of massachusetts. love massachusetts. but during governor romney's campaign for governor down there, he promised the same thing he's promising now. said he would fight for jobs and middle class families. but once he took office, he pushed through a tax cut that overwhelmingly benefitted 278 of the wea
more than that and we would get unemployment down to some acceptable level. >> the tax drop under reagan, which everybody likes to quote, was significantly larger than anything being proposed, including by mitt romney and anything more than we can afford right now. but stay right there, peter. we'll come back to this. >> ali, let me bring in diane swonk, who can take the politics out of this for a moment. we're not going to wake up to the same economic problems on wednesday just because there's a different president, right? it's going to be the same situation wednesday morning as tuesday night. >> absolutely. and i think one of the important issues here is let's keep focus on what's going on here. labor force participation rates, lot of games being played with that. it peaked in 2000 when we had really low unemployment rates and anyone with a pulse -- there's a book written about a nudist that got a job working the midnight shift. i wouldn't want to sit in his seat afterwards. i mean, he worked in the nude. i don't want to vision visualize this. but that was the period. half reduc
and rising income, people pay more in taxes so we're able forget closer to a balanced budget. all of these things work together. right now we're going in the wrong direction. we'll change it to go in the right direction. and one thing we have to do to make that happen, we have to do something that you do time in and time out. in your life, if you got someone you got to work with, you disagree, well, you find some way to work together. we're going to have to have an administration in washington, my team in washington, that is willing to work with people across the aisle. to build bridges, to work with other people, to come together, to find ways to get america to work better. and i know how to do that. i did that in my state. my state has a few democrats. you have heard of massachusetts. my legislature was 85% democrat. and i came in to office, we had a multi-billion dollar budget gap. we didn't go to work fighting each other. we came to work to work together. and we found a way to do that. and so we cut spending. we actually reduced the amount of money government was spending. and

three people inside. one lawmaker is balking at the idea of spending your tax dollars there. steve king is a republican congressman from landlocked iowa, a fiscal conservative who often rails against spending. in fact, he gained prominence for opposing federal aid for victims of hurricane katrina. he says that can teach us lessons now. >> i want to get them resources to lift them out of this water and the sand and the ashes and the death that's over there in the east coast and especially in the northeast. but not one big check, because they send it on gucci bags and massage parlors and everything you can think of in addition to what was necessary. >> representative king said that during a debate. his democratic opponent seized on his comment in the final debate before tuesday's election called king's words, quote, heartless. >>> president obama back on the campaign trail, but still following efforts of superstorm sandy, spending wednesday afternoon with new jersey governor chris christie. the two saw devastated areas from the air on marine one and met with people in the oceanside city,
cut spending. we actually reduced the amount of money government was spending. and then we cut taxes 19 times. we made our state more business-friendly, the result of all of this was or job growth went from the basement up 20 points, up 20 states, that is. and we were able to balance the budget. and by the way, the $3 billion budget gap turned into a rainy day fund. >> hi, everybody, i'm don lemon, we'll let you continue to listen to mitt romney, we'll watch coverage politics and hurricane sandy, back in a few minutes with mitt romney. >> let me tell you, i'm confident in the future. look, i know these have been tough years and we're tired of being tired. yeah, the democrats chant four more years, we chant ten more days. righ right? >> ten more days, ten more days, ten more days, ten more days. >> you are right, ten more days, ten more days's we're changing our chant tomorrow, they keep saying four more years, we got a new chanlt, ten more days. let me tell you why i'm so confident. i have seen the entrepreneur's spirit in this country. i've seen it here, by the way. i was delighted.
's a difference of opinion between the two camps, romney's view that high income tax cuts and deregulation lead to growth. the obama view that it's investments in infrastructure, the work force, things of that nature that will lead to faster growth. and you know, you have to pick one or the other. >> and then quickly, yes or no, will voters take these numbers, these jobs numbers just days before election day, into the voting booth with them? >> probably not. i mean, certainly not the people whose power is out and they're dealing with the hurricane damage and stuff like that. but evidence is pretty clear that people get a general impression of the economy as opposed to looking and sayingering well, this was 171,000 and it was expected to be 125,000 so therefore i'm going to be really happy. >> that was the former chairman of the president's council of economic advisers. jim acosta is traveling with the romney campaign for a rally in dubuque, iowa, after a morning stop in new hampshire. he filed this recoport just a f minutes ago. >> mitt romney is in the middle of a battleground blitz you might
to ask the wealthiest americans to go back to the tax rates they paid when bill clinton was in office. because as long as i'm president, i will never turn medicare into a voucher just to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. i will never allow this nation to be plunged into another battle over health care reform just so insurance companies can jump back into the driver's seat. i will never allow politicians in washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves. so, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility. we don't need a partisan agenda. we need a commonsense agenda that says when we educate a poor child, we'll all be better off. that says when we fund the research of a young scientist, her new discovery will benefit every american. we need a vision that says we don't just look out for ourselves. we look out for one another. we look out for future generations, and we meet those oblig

with apparently americans for tax reform, that tried to politicize the storm. so the outside groups and the outside money, you're going to see an uptick in dirty tricks in part because it is dirty money that is flowing through the election system. the candidates may try to stay out of the fray, but the outside groups will be more than willing to take off the gloves and fight hard because this is a war of attrition now, this fight is so close that it comes down to every vote. it is a game of inches. >> with the close fight, it has been days since we have looked at polls. so in the name of getting our bearings here, we have a poll today, a three-swing state, this is in new york times, cbs news an quinnipiac poll. florida, 48-47 for obama. ohio, 50-45 for obama. and finally virginia, 49-47 for obama. these three states very, very close. looking at the numbers, what do they tell you? >> reporter: they tell me, brooke, they're fascinating, in particular florida and virginia. these are the big three swing states. that's what we have been going through on the battleground bus tour. florida
